If you’re an avid Twitter user, then you will know all about opening the links posted by the people and companies that you follow. By the end of your Twitter session, you may very well have accumulated a million tabs in your browser. Wouldn’t it be a bit easier to actually read the links while you are on Twitter?
Nearly presenting itself as a replacement for Google Reader, Tweewer takes the links from your specified feeds and publishes them on its website itself. It does this by taking Twitter interest lists from you or the people you follow and aggregating them into one site.
Is Tweewer an RSS reader? No. As a matter of fact, it has absolutely nothing to do with RSS feeds – it just uses Twitter interest lists. It doesn’t even locate the RSS feeds within the provided links and reformat them using the site’s main theme. However, it does offer the same solution as an RSS feed – to compile all of your favorite news sources into one central location.
Admittedly, the site’s layout is a little clunky. It makes use of a mouse-based control system, and the video provided makes it look a bit prettier than it actually is. Granted, if you spend a bit of time with the site, you’ll become more used to how it functions, and I’m sure you’ll be able to match the cursor movements that the creator was able to dish out. If the mouse isn’t your weapon of choice, then you can use your keyboard to move things around.
Tweewer is well on its way to becoming a useful website for reading links all in one place. Try it out and see if you like it.
